in lines for hours to make sure that president obama would get elected and would go down the road of a progressive agenda? what about all the ground troops who went door to door? the get out the vote effort that worked really hard to re-elect this president. this was a romney vote. that's what this was tonight. they didn't do it to face the same obstruction from republicans. all those workers out there. that's not why they did it. harry reid is leth the minority party run the country. he's giving the republicans all the ammunition they need to block president obama's second-term agenda. and you know what? he's going to regret it. so what does this mean? this means that activist groups are the only ones that can save the country when it comes to legislation because the activist groups are going to have to go out and get in these districts and in these states where senators are who are not doing the right thing and primary them. and let them know that they're not going to win the next election. do the unions of this country deserve what just happened tonight after as hard as they wo
obama and secretary clinton will be sitting down with steve kroft from "60 minutes." this is interesting, because it will be their first joint interview. it will air, of course, on sunday. of course, you can expect the two of them to get a range of questions, particularly about benghazi. and we also expect there to be some reflection about secretary clinton's tenure as secretary of state. of course, she's the most traveled secretary of state. so a lot to talk about during that interview. >> and, obviously, president obama, the first thing he did after being inaugurated was push forward the nominations for treasury and state. and obviously, john kerry had his first appearance before a senate panel yesterday, getting some tough questions about benghazi as hillary clinton did this week as well. >> reporter: he was, luke. and by all accounts, senator kerry's nomination is really expected to sail through. everyone expects him to be confirmed. but what happened yesterday is that he got some tough questions about secretary clinton's testimony a day earlier on benghazi. what the administration k
is not ruling out a run in 2016 and then there is hillary clinton, president obama and secretary clinton did a joint interview airing tonight, take a look at that. >> i just wanted to have a chance to publicly say thank you because i think hillary will go down as one of the finest secretary of states we've had. >> president obama asked me to be secretary of state and i said yes and why did i ask me and why did i say yes because we both love our country. >> donna, what was that really? was that a little preview for this is the woman who i want to be president? >> well, i still believe it's too early to talk about 2016. we have to figure out who is going to win the super bowl next week much the truth of the matter is joe biden is a natural like bill clinton, he ahe a natural. he loves politics, reaching out but i do believe that this -- that president obama and secretary clinton have become real good, close friends. he's relied on her. her judgment. he trusts her advice. this is a relationship that i think has been forged during the four years that they've worked very closely together. >> i wa
, the whole theory is flawed. that is why the obama administration frankly promised health insurance costs for a family it's going down $2500 a year. we've already seen it in fact go up $3,000 and we're really at the premium increases we're about to see. this law and lots of theories, this law was built to fail because the next step then is to say, boy, those evil insurance companies they are raising the price even though it's a flawed system and go to a single payer system which is the goal at the very beginning. it's a very scary thing. there is a trust deficit between the american people and the president and we see that today. >> greta: one last word, 2800 pages and every member of congress voted on it didn't read it which i think is peculiar. the people that we never elected or voted for, those are the people that wrote the regulations. suddenly the congress and president had outsourced they make these regulations. we're going to see how it plays out. the numbers right now don't add up. congressman, thank you, sir. >>> on to stockton, california where the unemployment is bay above the
brian hook the group is running is ads is urging democratic senators to vote no. >> barack obama's nominee for secretary of defense wants america to back down. an end to our nuclear program. devastating defense cuts, a weaker country. >> another group, american future fund has ads questioning hagel's ethics calling on the senate to post phone the hear. finally a group that purports to be coming from the left supported by members of the gay and lesbian community. the group has contacted voters in seven states as part of what it calls a seven-figure campaign against haggle but its roots some say are suspect. gay rights groups have questioned its authenticity and "the new york times" linked to republican admakers. chuck hagel's supporters have had their hands full trying to push back against the criticism. with me now is somebody who is trying to push back. a lot of criticism of chuck hagel based on some of the things he has said about israel and what is considered pro-israel and not pro-israel these days in american politics. do you believe any of this criticism is warranted? is an
the can down the road. is this proverbial constant delay, delay, delay until they can get anything together? >> i don't blame president obama for all of this. i do think he inherit the a very polarized nation. richard nixon and ronald reagan won re-election with 48 and 49 states. obama squeaked out a victory here. one thing obama has to do, even if it's not his fault, he has to lead the country. the nation is in an interesting position, where the right has turned very right and the red has turned very red and the blue is very blue. but on issues like immigration and the budget, i think there is a chance to move forward and i think the democrats on the hill will urge the president to work in a more bipartisan fashion, because if you look at the senate races in 2014, there is a lot of democratic senator who is have to get re-elected in swing or red states. so i think political reality is this -- they have to come together to get some things done or both sides will fail and be criticized. >> eric: specifically, how does he find his way out of this one? speaker baner says he -- speaker
? well, all of america now knows it was an empty promise, just like when president obama promised health insurance premiums would go down. over and over again the president said that his law would lower premiums by $2,500 a family by the end of his first term in office. the president hasn't talked much about that hately. didn't hear anything about it in the inaugural address and i don't expect to hear very much about it in the state of the union. that's because average premiums across the country for families haven't gone down, not by the $2,500 that the president promised, not by even $1,000, not even by a cent. instead, average family premiums have actually gone up by more than $3,000 during the president's first term. that's pretty big math there on the part of president obama and the american people unfortunately are the ones who have to pay for his mistake. because of his policies, health insurance is a lot less affordable for a lot of people and for a the although of small businesses. -- and for a lot of small businesses. many small businesses are facing what is turning out to be a
the american people. that's a crime. and you know, we find out that lanny brewer might be stepping down. thank god, about time. he should have been fired a long time ago but the problem is his boss and his boss' boss. holder and obama are in on it. they got paid a tremendous harassment of money whether its campaign contributions or actual money that holder got at that firm to do this to the american people. and it is sick. the bush people did it and the obama people did it. you want to know the facts watch martin's documentary. you know my thoughts. thank you for coming. >> thank you. >> cenk: news just broke recently. is there going to be better treatment of gays in the military. do you remember the guy who got booed, the service man who got booed during the republican debate? he's here to talk about it. how gays are being treated today in the military. >> my question is do you intend to circumvent the gay and lesbian soldiers in the military. an impact that gets people to take action themselves. as a human being, that's really important. this is not just a spectator sport. [ voice of denni
going forward for the country is that all of us need to help president obama create his legacy which i'm sure he does not want to go down as the president bankrupts america. all of us around the table, regardless of political stripes have a great vested interest in helping him make sure that does not happen, and, of course, the role all of us can play in deciding what do we want to spend our government money on and be an influence to have our voices heard as do we really want to send 55 million dollars to i understand knee sha to help -- indonesia to help improve the infant mortality rate in indonesia when we have babies here who could benefit from that same expenditure. that's enough said. we're delighted to be a part of the american dream. i came out of the army with $800 of accumulative leave pay, and the lord blessed that into $700 million, and that comes from three things, the workers god put in my life, 70 people to help pick stock and interact with clients, and secondly, a hospitable government environment. you had a taxation and a regulatory environment which allowed me to pros
in the senate plan and what president obama laid out today. >> right. >> where okay, we can start the pathway to citizenship if this panel to consist of governors of border states down to the southwest and others down there in the southwest, we are talking about like jan brewer, rick perry, people like this, if they declare the border secure and as toure said, if they're in the mood to, they could say not secure, not secure. what in your mind is a fair standard to make a secure border? >> two things. i think we have to as you already pointed out and talked about by the other panels, find a way to basically make sure the people here are on a path to citizenship. bring families over in a controlled way. bring the families over. great idea. you control it. you don't fight it. >> okay. >> so i'm sorry to interrupt. part of declaring the border secure is having in place already the path to citizenship. is that what you're saying? >> right. i'm saying that you have to have control the fact that families want to come. deal with that right up front or they try to sneak across. you have to accept that
be president with 273 votes to obama's 262. even though president obama won more than three million more votes than mitt romney under this proposed system he would have lost the election. virginia governor bob mcdonald shot down a similar proposal in his state last week, but michigan governor rick snyder says he is open to the idea. in republican statehouses, a new motto perhaps. if at first you don't succeed, cheat. joining the panel now is president of the brennan center for justice, michael waldman. every time are you on this program there's a new outrage. this may be the most outrageous. >> i deny any connection to making that happen. this is the kind of thing that gives tunism a bad name. >> yes. yes. to say the least. >> i'm no fan of the electoral college wrish think we should have a national popular vote where everybody's vote counts equally, but there is so much worse than what we have now. as you say, this would make it so that whoever wins a congressional district gets that electoral vote, but the fact is democrats, liberals, especially racial minorities, tend to be in cities or nea
bureaucratic red tape coming down the pike, and i think we need to be a little bit concerned about this. now, the righties out there are saying well, obama care, it's just too much government intervention. what about this? listen to the real folks calling a talk show, talking about what they're living with. first of all, you got to fix the visa backlog. okay? how do you do that? you get people engaged to do it and you start making phone calls and calling them. in maybe you can use the dmv. i mean, this is one of the big problems right here, the backlog. what that gentleman was talking about off the radio show. and a time frame. can we make it reasonable? do we want to tell these folks hey, you got to wait another 12 or 13 years. what? some of these folks have been here more than ten years. can't we get them on the fast track? how much loyalty do they have to show? what the republicans are afraid of is that they'll vote for the democrats so, we got to slow this baby down a little bit. the other thing is paying fines and back taxes. all right. let's take, for instance, that there is someone ou

because they had convinced themselves that if obama was going to lose this, it was their fault, it was on the staffers. but what they saw last night was, oh, my god, our hero let us down. they were so shocked by it. >> one of the other revelations in the book is where you talk about the fact that the president faces at least ten, ten credible threats to his safety. and i guess that explains why following the inauguration speech when he was seen walking in washington, he was surrounded by countless numbers of agents because he literally can't do that without that level of protection. >> i mean, it makes me nervous to even talk about it. watching those scenes, i was thinking i am glad i'm not part of the secret services. it would be so anxiety provoking. and also the gun control issue. why is the president so moved by these gun massacres? because he is in the eye of the storm. there is potential violence circling him at all times. and not only do the zret service need to protect him from the real threats, terrorists, these kinds of things, but if obama -- the love for obama is so
obama create his legacy which i'm sure he does not want to go down as the president that bankrupted america. so all of us around this table, regardless of our political stripes, have a great vested interest in helping him make sure that doesn't happen. and, of course, the role all of us can play in deciding what do we want to spend our government money on and be an influence so we can have our voices heard as to do we really want to send $55 million to indonesia to help improve the infant mortality rates in indonesia when we have babies here who could probably benefit from the same expenditure? i think that's about enough said. we're delighted to be a part of the american dream. i came out of the army with $800 of cumulative leave play, and the lord blessed it to get into sell of $100 million of net worth, and the success i've enjoyed comes from, i believe, three things. one is the fact that the workers or that god put in my life, 70 people who helped me pick stocks, interact with the clients and, secondly, was a hospitable governmental environment. you had a taxation and a regulato
's for a comprehensive immigration bill so maybe he's told his friends at fox to stand down on this. we'll see. but it's really -- it is sad that people, you know, make every single thing is about -- is it good for barack obama? i have to say when john boehner the speaker said well, i hope the president doesn't push this bill to the left and make it impossible. i mean why doesn't he just say isn't it great we're on the same page. we have an issue. it is challenging. it is going to be tough but let's all work together. oh no. the president should just be quiet. that's his message. well, i know the president will not be quiet. the president is going to hold our feet to the fire. we'll get this done. >> stephanie: i agree with you. i don't care why they do it. they tend to blurt things out like we need to get the latino vote back. that's the point -- something you're not supposed to say. >> i couldn't believe it. i had to shake my head when john mccain said on national news, you know, it's the latino vote. as if the latinos aren't listening to this. >> stephanie: they have some sort of different hearing
. and others that democrats are not really on board. alternative energy agenda that the obama administration is pursuing as well. and on health care, there are particular parts of obamacare that congress may be able to slow down or stop. the piece is mostly a report on what the administration is doing, but it gives guidance to congress. one thing republicans in congress needs to think about is what they can accomplish in by sized chunks. there will not change health care in a conservative direction in the next four years or reform entitlements. can they accomplish a few good things that also point the way towards bigger things later? i thing maybe they can. host: our guest is bill kristol. our next call is from frederick, maryland, peter is on the republican line. thanks for waiting. caller: how are things? host: fine. sounds like you're listening to us on c-span radio. caller: yes, sir. it's good to listen to, but it plays havoc on my blood pressure. republicans have been losing for 30 years or more. they are up against a very liberal education system as well as a very liberal media in gene
